Getting back into it with an easy one! 

I think I'm 5/5 on AoC solves so far that allowed me to use new formula functions available since 23.2 😁 Product in the Summarize tool in particular has been SURPRISINGLY useful!!

Found a fun way to use the Detour tool to change 1-2 pieces of logic from Part 1 as a way to quickly solve Part 2!
Pretty pleased with the tool golf score, total runtime around 17 seconds for Part 2 (not bad, could be better, but given the number of rows with Generate Rows, I won't complain!)
